Nokia Q1 2013: Lumias Rise But Not Fast Enough

by Neil Mawston | 4月 23, 2013

According to our Wireless Device Strategies (WDS) service, Nokia shipped 62 million mobile phones worldwide in Q1 2013, down to 2005 levels, in a seasonally weaker post-holiday quarter with consequent sluggish demand in feature phones globally. In contrast, Nokia saw demand for its line of WP8-based Lumia smartphones grow robustly as it expanded the reach to dozens of new markets. Additionally, tighter cost controls and lower operating expenses helped Nokia eke out some positive operating profits. However, Nokia has its work cut out for the rest of 2013 to ramp up Lumia smartphone shipments quickly to offset the Symbian and feature phone slowdowns. Improving its sub-par performance in China, US, UK, Japan and Korea should also be a priority for Nokia this year. More analysis can be viewed by clients in this published report:
